Share shortcuts on Mac
You can share your shortcuts with friends through iCloud or as a file. You can add import questions to your shortcut before sharing, to personalise the shortcut on your friend’s device.
Share a shortcut through iCloud
In the Shortcuts app on your Mac, double-click a shortcut.
In the shortcut editor, click .
Do one of the following:
Share a shortcut using an app: Choose an app name from the pop-up menu, click Share, then use the app to send the link.
Share a shortcut as a link: Choose Copy iCloud Link from the pop-up menu, then click Share.
The link is copied to your Clipboard, ready for you to paste into an email, message or text document.
When the recipient clicks the link, a description of the shortcut is displayed, and when the recipient clicks Get Shortcut, the shortcut is added to their shortcuts collection.
Share a shortcut from the shortcut editor as a file
In the Shortcuts app on your Mac, select a shortcut.
Choose File > Export.
Type a name for the file and choose a save location.
Click the For pop-up menu, then choose one of the following:
Anyone: Anyone can run your shortcut. Apple will receive a copy of your shortcut for validation (to prevent unauthorised tampering when you share it).
People Who Know Me: Only people who have you in their contacts will be able to run your shortcut. Your contact info will be included in the shortcut file.
The file is saved to the specified location, ready for sharing.
